Connecting Phone to Sound System

I have a Nokia 5300 that I want to use / plugin to my external surround sound system.

I would like to know what is required to use the audio / headphone jack and plug this into external devices.

Are there any special cables or cords required, and does the phone have this capability.

i tried using a standard audio jack and didnt get any sound!

Nokia 5300 Operating System

I would like to know what the operating system is for the Nokia 5300. I have the Nokia 6126 right now and it runs S40V3, which is the version where you can assign individual ringtones to contacts. Would I be able to do that on the Nokia 5300?

Belt Clip?

Anyone know what the deal is to get a belt clip for this little beauty? I mean, before the screen gets totally scratched up by keys and coins!
The sales dude at the local T-Mobile shop told me it was so new on the market that they (Nokia?) hadn't brought one out yet. I say that given it's not a flip-phone a belt clip should be included in the phone package.
If I'd known this at the time, I may well have opted for a different phone - that's plain bad planning/marketing by Nokia and the carriers. Evil or Very Mad

Where can I buy the Nokia 5300?

Hello. I currently own a Nokia 6126 that is malfunctioning and I would like to know where I can buy an unlocked Nokia 5300. It has to have the 850 band, because I live in the U.S. I know that I can buy one at T-Mobile, but those phones are locked. Any advice would be helpful.

Changing Memory Card

I've upgraded my memory card to the 1GB, but have a small problem.

I am trying to copy over everything from the original card to the new one, but it won't let me copy the games, or collections as they are protected.

Is there a way to do this?

Nokia 5300 vs. Samsung T629

I've had my Samsung T629 for about two months and I've been pretty happy with it, but I cracked my screen and now I need a new phone. So I was wondering if I should get another T629 or get the Nokia 5300. It seems like it is a really nice phone. So if you have any information about the two phones, please post. Thank You! Smile

SE W600i vs. Nokia 5300

I carry two phones, a Cingular W600i that is still under contract that I use for personal calls, and a Verizon LG VX8600 that I use for work and to get reception where my Cingular won't. I saw the Nokia 5300 on a while ago, when my first w600i was stolen. But this replacement w600i is getting old, worn out, and starting to bug out. I was impressed with the 5300 when I saw it online, but now that I've seen the phone in person, I'm considering getting it.

The reason that I chose to stay with the w600i was for the outstandingly loud volume of the earpiece, ringer, and speakerphone. Now that I've seen that the 5300 is louder in all aspects, I'm really torn.
